A little about me

I previously worked in New York City at the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services (CASES) for a grant-funded program Intensive Mobile Treatment (IMT). I conducted outreach to individuals experiencing serious mental illness and street homelessness. I worked with individuals with criminal justice involvement conducting visits at Rikers Island and forensic psychiatric hospitals.

Why I love my job

I am dedicated to ensuring individuals with behavioral health diagnoses receive the highest quality of care. My familiarity and interest in the Institute for Family Health began through a partnership with my former employer CASES. CASES and the Institute provided primary care services co-located at the Nathaniel Clinic in Harlem.
